Glass and metal substrates exposed to subtropical seawater exhibit a characteristic succession of periphytic microorganisms. Substrates which are biologically and physically inert (glass and stainless steel) fouled rapidly and produced a complex, two-tier microfouling layer. Characteristic microorganisms were bacteria, fungi, choanoflagellates, diatoms,(More)
Electrochemical polarization of copper and platinum was shown to affect the attachment of two marine bacteria to the surfaces of these metals in seawater. Attachment of both bacteria to copper surfaces was enhanced by polarizing the metal cathodically, whereas attachment was reduced when the copper was anodically polarized. Anodic polarization of platinum(More)
